Ubuntu :: Disable Showing Of Mounted Volumes On Desktop And In Nautilus Sidebar?

May 1, 2010

I have a bit unusual request.
There are three partitions on my hard drive. Two of them were assigned to mount points / and /home during system installation. The third one was left intact.
After installation the first two partitions were automatically integrated into directory tree and there was a shortcut on the Nautilus sidebar for the third one. Then, I registered the third partition in /etc/fstab for automounting at /home/user/Data directory. For now it works fine, the volume is mounted on startup. But I still have the shortcut to this volume in Nautilus sidebar and icon on my Desktop.
I am interested, if it is possible to disable showing of this items on Desktop and in Nautilus to make the third partition look like registered at system setup time.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Media Not Showing On Desktop?

Jan 19, 2011

For some strange reason, my media mounted in /media is not showing on my desktop on Lucid (10.04).I've been through gconf-editor to make sure the box is checked to show the mounted media in Nautilus. I also checked the options to show my Home folder and Computer icons on the desktop, but these do not show either.Tried ubuntu-tweaks to see if it would work, but no go there either.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Device Not Showing Up On Desktop

Feb 17, 2011

I have two external hard drives mounted to my computer. They both work and are accessible. The one shows up on my desktop when it is mounted just fine. The other one does not. I went in to Configuration editor-apps-nautilus-desktop and checked the volumes_visible. That makes the other one not visible/visible but not the one I am having problems with. I read somewhere that devices must be named for it to show up and both devices are named, I even changed the name and that didn't do anything. Again, this device shows up in my computer but not on my desktop like all my other devices do. If anyone has any ideas on how I can get this external hard drive to show up.

Ubuntu :: Can't Login After Trying To Fix Nautilus Not Showing Desktop

Apr 12, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10, and is the only OS installed on my system. Yesterday, my desktop stopped working - no right-click function / display of icons. My wallpaper was still intact. The last thing I did was pressed ALT + F2 and executed "gksudo nautilus". This fixed my desktop for the time being, but wasn't showing the correct icons/wallpaper.The real problem started when I restarted. I get the normal login screen, and when I enter my info, it just restarts back to the login screen. I know I am entering the correct information, my caps lock isn't on etc. If I enter my password incorrectly it doesn't reload, it just acts normal and says the pw was wrong. Only when I enter my info correctly does it go to a black screen really quick, then come back to the boot screen.

I am at work right now, but will be checking this thread again later tonight. Please help, I am locked out of my computer which I desperately need to log in to!

Ubuntu :: Hide Partitions From The Places Sidebar Even If Mounted

Jan 24, 2010

How do I...

* Prevent the sdb1 + sdb2 ext4 partitions from being shown in Nautilus/Thunar Places sidebar.

* Prevent the Western Digital SmartWare VirtualCD, sdr1, from being shown in Nautilus/Thunar Places sidebar. It is just a VCD that is part of the firmware of the external (sdb) hard drive. *GAG!*

I don't care if they are mounted or not, though I prefer if they aren't. As long as they don't show up on the Places sidebar AT ALL, I'll be happy. I never use them, but keep mounting them by accident.

Here's my fstab, can you tell me why it's not doing the above?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Ubuntu :: Get Rid Of Sidebar Border In Nautilus?

May 12, 2010

I've seen a lot of screenshots on gnome-look.org of themes that have nautilus without the ugly sidebar border. However when I install these themes I still get that border.

Example of a theme without the ugly border: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=124462

I've attached a screenshot of my nautilus with a red stroke indicating the border I am talking about.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this?

Ubuntu :: Change Default For Opening Mounted Volumes In Unity Launcher?

Apr 29, 2011

I automount two NTFS volumes on login. These display in both the desktop and the Unity launcher.

The first time I clicked one of them in the Unity launcher, it asked if I wanted to use Nautilus or Thunar. I chose Thunar.

Now, when I open the volumes in the Unity launcher, it always uses Thunar. When I open the volumes on my desktop, it always uses Nautilus.

Is there any way to standardize these, so that I use either Thunar or Nautilus, but not both? And how do I switch back and forth? Where can I reset the Unity launcher to use Nautilus again?

General :: Tool That Shows Disk Space Of Mounted Volumes Graphically?

Dec 20, 2010

I am looking for such a tool, very much like the one that is on Windows 7, where you can basically with one glance see how much of a volume is occupied (graphical bar) and that for all mounted volumes. I have been looking for this, but so far I have not found it.Also, important: that it is auto updated. So that it is not like a report that was generated and then does not change anymore, but a live thing

Fedora :: Flash Drive Showing As 2 Volumes?

Sep 8, 2011

I have a load of Maxell 2GB flash drives which I bought new.

It has a Public Partition and a Secure partition on the flash drive.

gparted and disk utility see it as 2 volumes. I need remove the 2MB secure partition to make the 2GB stick bootable. However since it's showing up as 2 volumes I can't see how to do it. Probably requires totally wiping the flash drive.

Can anyone recommend how I go about this?

Ubuntu :: New Desktop Environment - No Sidebar Or Taskbar / Menubar At The Top

May 20, 2011

I just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 on my compaq laptop, My Issue is this, the upgrade went well for being over the internet, rebooted, got to the kewl new desktop environment, then tried to enable compiz fusion desktop cube, and darn it if I didnt lose the desktop environment. The pic I installed as desktop background is still there, and the desktop icons are as well, but no sidebar or taskbar/menubar at the top,I dont know if this is a resolution issue, or if unity is the desktop environment then it maybe' isn't enabled?,...

while trying to fix this issue(in recovery mode) I got an error message saying that my hardware doesn't support unity, I do not know if that is the problem or not, everything worked fine until I tried to run compiz fusion, now all I have is a desktop background and icons?? I am still learning the Linux environment and how to do things with the command line

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Quirks On Upgrade To 10.10 - New 'unity' Sidebar Launcher Supposed To Replace The Old On-screen Menu?

Oct 10, 2010

Just updated from Lucid to Maverick UNE. (It froze at one point, so I killed it from a virtual console and used 'dpkg --configure -a' to complete the installation.) My question: Isn't the new 'unity' sidebar launcher supposed to replace the old on-screen menu? We now have both. And the old menu seems buggy: e.g. the text under some icons is displayed *vertically* (i.e. in a column just one character wide!) instead of horizontally.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Partition Not Showing Up In Fstab

Jan 16, 2011

I'm totally new with linux and Ubuntu. I've just installed 10.10 yesterday and since then it's been an uphill struggle These forums has helped me out quite a bit already so I hope you can continue doing it with this problem I have.I got a single drive where the bootpartition is ext4 and the other "storage" partition is a remenant from a windows 7 installation I had, with NTFS. Decided I wanted to give Ubuntu a try! Now i've run into permission trouble though, mainly because I wanted to set up an FTP server (oh what a struggle THAT's been, I have some stories... ). I've done a "mount --bind" so that I can reach different resources directly from my chroot. It turns out though that the mounted partition isn't giving anyone except the owner (me) permission to see the resources. FTPing into the server gives the mount points but gives a 550 error and can't list anything inside of them.It works perfectly for me just running it at the prompt or using the mount points directly in the Ubuntu GUI though (since I'm the owner/admin/whatever).

My intended solution that I've found was that people with NTFS drives did a few magic tricks with the line of text in Fstab so they could access their NTFS drives. Problem for me is that my sda3 mount isn't showing up at all in fstab, even though fstab is supposed to (as far as I know) show all mounted devices on there. All the while, I have my sda3 totally accessible from /media/Storage/. Any pointers as to why this is?After I installed Ubuntu, I just mounted the sda3 with the Disk Utility from System->Administation and didn't think much of it afterwards until now.What's the best course of action here? remount the ntfs partiton using fstab? Convert the ntfs partition into an ext4? I have a lot of data on there I want to keep as well.

Ubuntu :: Hide Volumes From Gnome-desktop?

May 5, 2010

Before anything I just want to apologize for my awful english (french people just talk/write french, that's a fact ) So, I have troubles with gnome menu volumes. I just want to hide them from the netbook-laucher but anything I've tried worked. I have two Windows / NTFS partitions wich are readeable/writable in ubuntu Lucid Lynx Netbook Remix. One is the C: partition, the other is the boot partition from Windows 7. This computer is for a public place so I can't let them just visible. To hide them I try few things :

ls -lR /dev/disk
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-05-05 09:59 Acer -> ../../sda3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-05-05 09:59 PQSERVICE -> ../../sda1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-05-05 10:05 SYSTEMx20RESERVED -> ../../sda2

Ubuntu :: Mounted Drives Invisible In Terminal AND Nautilus

Jan 27, 2010

I am using Karmic Koala and not finding uniform behavior regarding internal hard drive mounts. I have placed commands in fstab to mount partitions at boot. One a separate hard drive and the other a separate partition on the boot drive that I set up during OS installation. After boot, GParted shows both of these partitions mounted on the right points (in my case, /dd and /opt). Both the mount points have rw permissions for all. But neither "ls -l" in the terminal nor nautilus shows the drives. They are evidently invisible.I searched the net for hours looking for an answer to this and couldn't find it. Hope someone knows why this is going on.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Partition With Nautilus Attributed To Another User

Sep 15, 2010

I have a really odd problem when I mount a partition with Nautilus is attributed to another user, I don't know why. I've tried by adding the following like in /etc/fstab
/dev/sda2 /media/windoze ext3 user,noauto,rw 0 0
Then I can mount the partition but in this case it is attributed to the root and I don't have the permission to read it. I cannot understand why since I've given the 'user' option.

This is probably me looking but not seeing an option somewhere. I re-installed 10.10 over 10.04 by formatting the root partition but keeping the home partition the same, to save me a lot of work. (64 bit) However, now when I mount a CD, DVD or USB stick, they don't appear in Dophin's "Places" window. What have I missed please?

Ubuntu :: Change Default Permissions Of Removable Media Mounted Via Nautilus?

May 2, 2010

behavior in 9.04:plugged in a disk, mounted it and it as readable to the world.this is intended because it is shared via samba.behavior in 10.04:the disks have 700, meaning, they are not readable by samba.this is a problem.this is the best solution I've found so far:http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-u.../msg10951.htmlexcept, that the mentioned means to fix this are gone.(gconf-editor -> ..., storage and preferences -> removable media)after 3 hours of googleing and reading I'm rather upset about this bug.so please, if you are thinking of suggesting fixed entries in the fstab or anything else that will not work with every media that is plugged into this box, just close this tab.

CentOS 5 Server :: NFS Mount Of Loop Mounted ISO's Showing No Files

Jul 16, 2009

I'm having a problem accessing files via nfs where an iso has been mounted through the loop device on the nfs server. Basically what I am attempting to do is access the 6 CentOS 5.2 ISO's via NFS from one of my client machines. The client is able to mount the share and see its sub directories leading up to the mount point of the ISO, but the contents of the mounted ISO image are simply not visible (on the client, they are visible on the server).

Server config (CentOS 5):

/home/user/iso/CentOS-5.2-x86_64-bin-1of7.iso /exportiso/centos/x64/5.2/disc1 iso9660 defaults,loop 0 0


NFS is working correctly for other mounts between these two boxes, however.

Ubuntu :: Mounting - Partition Not Showing In Nautilus

Jan 1, 2011

Besides having Ubuntu I also have Windows 7 and to keep data between the two I keep a separate partition. So far I have been automatically mounting this partition in /media by editing fstab. The partition shows up in Places and on Desktop. Now I have changed mount-point to be in /mnt and this works fine, the partition mounts. The problem is that it doesn't show up in Places nor on the Desktop. I have changed back the mount-point to /media and the partition shows up on the Desktop and in Places fine, but when the mount-point is changed it won't show up anymore.
